Keto Creamy Tuscan Chicken

Updated: Mar 20, 2019



My husband and I have been on a health journey since the beginning of the new year. We started with purchasing a Peloton Bike, which is awesome btw! Then we kept hearing people talking about going "Keto", so we decided to do a bit of research. Which means my husband sends me a bunch of articles to read, buys a Keto recipe magazine while I do all of the actual research...lol. This carb-o-holic has found out that it is a full time commitment to come up with alternative choices for side dishes that I would normally just make some pasta. I have to say that we haven't jumped straight in without a net so far but have been substituting our normals carbs for healthier choices.


I have gotten a few requests for the meal that I made last night, so without further ado and more writing.... here is the recipe. Bon Appetite!
